7:00 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there is an electricity in the city that you normally would not see until a general election debate. about a year from now. the challenge for the top ten in the main event tonight is most of them will stand on the stage for roughly 110 minutes each silently. when they get called on, can they show energy and leadership? that includes donald trump. >> you're fired. >> he's known for putting on a show, but donald trump has never been on a stage like this. tonight the frontrunner will be front and center flanked by nine republican rivals. >> how do you prepare for trump? >> i'm not running against the people on the stage. i'm running for president. >> reporter: trump did face new questions whether he's too cozy with the clintons. clinton's office tells nbc news the presidential race was not discussed but trump aids tell the washington post clinton encouraged him to play a larger
7:01 am
role in the republican party. if clinton said that it worked. this map posted by google shows the most surge the republicans. all that red is donald trump. >> he put glasses on so people will think he's smart. >> reporter: he would like tonight's event to be civil. for donald trump to say he wants a civil debate it seems like he's breaking the theme. >> that wouldn't be the first time donald trump contradicts himself. >> reporter: carly fear renee didn't make the cut. that also includes bobby jindal trying to breakthrough with the political stunt. in a push up contest sporting a tie. >> still many have to say most pressure may be on jeb bush. >> fairly or not the presumption is, the perception is as trump gains steam it's jeb bush losing
7:02 am
his preimminent place in the field. >> reporter: donald trump says he has never debated before. his aids insist there's been no rehearsing. they say what you see tonight will be the real donald. >> all right, peter. thank you. one thing is for sure it's going to be an interesting night. for more let's bring in chuck todd moderator of "meet of press press." good morning, chuck. >> reporter: good morning. >> it's finally here. the republican debate. it has a happy hour. if you're one of the ten prime time candidates tonight, do you have to come with some kind of a one liner in your pocket that you're going to deliver no matter what you're asked just to make the highlight reels tomorrow? >> i'll tell you, no. i think if a candidate does that, they risk falling on their face and looking cliche-like. i think all the candidates on stage need to realize something that we in the media aren't focussed on.
7:03 am
that's the fact they'll be making a first impression. their very first impression on millions of people tuning in to hear the candidate. they may have read about them, seen them on twitter, but this is a chance to make a first impression, and, matt, the saying goes you don't get a second chance. this is a big night. i think the candidates need to be careful not to try to be overly entertaining because then they may diminish themselves. >> wait a second. you're telling me there's hope here. we could have a real discussion tonight on things like immigration and iran and isis and it'll be more about the stake and less about the sizzle? >> i think it's possible. look, i think the moderator will try hard. if the candidates come in here, i think all of them will try to do that. that's what first debates usually are. it's unusual first debates because the presence of trump and what he's done. obviously the moderators want them to engage.
7:04 am
at that point we'll see. can donald trump go two hours in the new clark kent per son that he's had or does he come out swinging once he's invited to do. >> speaking that have, he's the frontrunner by a wide margin. generally if you take center stage in that position, you're probably going to be a little cautious because you don't want to blow it, but nothing about donald trump is cautious. >> reporter: that's right. and he's been down playing his expectations. i think if you're a political strategies, he's been down playing them rather beautifully. he has a low bar to succeed. if he doesn't look as crazy as the media then people will say, wow, donald trump looked pretty reasonable. he doesn't have much to prove, but one of the reasons why he's skyrocketed he's been willing to tell it like it is. i don't think he can be overly reserved either. he has to give the people a
7:05 am
little bit of trump they've been excited to see. >> chuck, thanks very much. the idea substance versus size sizzle. that's on us as well. we have to make sure they talk about the issues as opposed to the one liners. chuck, thank you very much. another big story the confusion and outrage this morning over what officials are saying about the piece of plane wing found on an island near madagascar. malaysian's prime minister saids it from mh 370 other but other investigators say more tests are needed. it's not been sitting well with family members of the victims. bill neely is following the story. good morning, bill. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. experts are back inside this french lab looking at the debris. we're waiting to hear exactly why they're so certains it s it it -- certain it
7:06 am
is mh 370. tears and anger from the families of many chinese passengers still uncertain their loved ones are dead. what does such a tiny piece of debris mean, she asks, on a 230 ton plane. why are they trying to fool us? to make us take the compensation money? we won't accept it. for families around the world this isn't over. >> unfortunately no closure. >> reporter: the families' pain state kerry. opened again. all the sorrow is felt even more intensely. >> reporter: the experts concluded within three hours that the debris found on the beach is from malaysian flight 370. >>s it -- it is with a heavy >> reporter: malaysian's prime
7:07 am
minister saying they confirmed it was from the missing plane. french prosecutors wouldn't go that far saying they can strongly presume it matched. australia agreed saying it was highly probable. china's government urging openness. mall they should explain more to the relatives, he said. the government said it was unique pain and seal lant that proved the part was from m 4rks 4rks -- mh 370. he claims his group has found more parts on reunion island. none has been confirmed as being from malaysian flight 370. the search for more debris intensifying. so the french here being very cautious. the malaysians appear anxious to end all the suffering of the families. this is a complex investigation.
7:08 am
it will go on here for weeks if not months. the big question remains unanswered why exactly did the plane crash? matt, savannah? >> bill neely, thank you. another investigation investigators in tennessee are learning more about the mand pepper spray and an ax to attack movie goers in tennessee. the suspect was killed by police. mark potter has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, matt. police are still trying to learn why the man came here to this theater, bought a ticket, and went inside to attack patrons. police say he had a documented history of mental problems. shots being fired right now. >> reporter: this morning police say this man 29-year-old vincente david monte bought a ticket to mad max.

7:10 am
montano's gun was a pellet gun but looks like a semi automatic. >> as you look at the gun and someone confronted you, you would think it was real. >> reporter: police say he carried a duffel bag and backpack which had a hoax explosive device. >> this is maybe what we call the new normal. we can't just shut down america. we carry out. we need to be mindful of our surroundings as we do that. >> reporter: now police are praising the responding officers for getting here so quickly to confront the attacker. saying that reduced the chances of other people being hurt and perhaps killed. matt? >> mark potter in tennessee for us on this story for us. thank you very much. turning to tamron in for natalie. a search for a dangerous suspect. good morning everyone. it's happening in shreveport, louisiana this morning. for a suspect who shot and killed a police officer. police say the officer was responding to reports of a suspicious person inside a home wednesday night.

8:19 am
from 2013 to 2014. these are just the surgeries done by board certified physicians. there's a more dangerous side for those that want the same look and don't see a real doctor. just look at the case on paige victoria winslow. sentenced in june to up to 20 years in prison, she was convicted of murder for injecting silicone into a british woman at the airport hotel in philadelphia. the low-grade silicon travelled to the woman's lungs killing her. in court, winslow claimed to have injected thousands of women but said she didn't realize the injections could be dangerous. this doctor said a growing number of women are coming to him with complications from the elicit treatments. >> a lot have pain walking. they get infections. >> can tow draft e dakota saw an unlicensed practitioner. >> days i cry because i feel so bad that i made a decision like
8:20 am
that that affects me -- not only me but my daughter. you know, i worry is something bad going to happen? >> reporter: her implants have chipped into the back of her legs. she's been in and out of the hospital misdiagnosed by doctors because she was too embarrassed to tell the truth. this shame is common among the women we met. this woman asked us to conceal her identity. >> i was afraid to go to the hospital. >> how long did you let the time pass before you went to the hospital? >> years. >> reporter: years? she said she flew to miami to have the silicone removed using liposuction but it didn't work. the pockets of silicon are spread all the way down her leg. both women are coming forward now to help others. >> i put aside my embarrassment because i want other women to understand that if you want to do a procedure it's better you spend the money and go to a real doctor.
8:21 am
don't go to someone in the neighborhood. it's not worth it. it's not worth your life. >> reporter: dakota and the other women are patients of this doctor and he'll operate on them soon to try to remove the silicon. in many cases insurance will cover these type of corrective procedures when the overall health of the patient is at risk. >> pretty eye opening report there. thank you. here with what you need to know before going under the knife is plastic surgeon dr. michelle. it seems to me the most important thing you can do is pick the right doctor. but how do you do that? ask? >> the most important thing is to make sure your doctor has hospital privileges even if the office. >> why is that? >> that's because it ensures the doctor has had training in the procedure you would like to have. not only has been trained but continues to hone her skills by classes. it says that the doctors on staff at the hospital respect
8:22 am
this doctor's ability to do the procedure, that the doctor is licensed, insured, and in case of the unlikely event of a team. >> you can ask for before and after photographs. how would you know they're not doctored by the doctor? have a good idea. you can ask to meet other patients who had the same procedure. this way you can see the results the doctor made are to yours a threatic liking. >> as we move on, are things that should be automatic red flags? it's important to make sure that the doctor is who you speak with and not just the ancillary staff. many options presented to you or just one? it's important to see how clean the office is. attention to detail is extremely important. is the staff a con due wit so you can get to the doctor with questions or do they act as barrier. does the surgeon talk about lots of options. >> i like this the cost is unusually low.
8:23 am
>> this is dangerous. everybody knows plastic surgery is not covered by insurance. there's a temptation to pick the least expensive surgery. s it a mistake -- it is a mistake to pick a doctor based on cost. >> it didn't look like you thought what do you do? >> don't panic. it could be part of the normal healing procedure. it takes about six weeks for the healing cur. if -- occur. you should get a second opinion even if you go back to the same surgery. dr. amy wexler will be here to answer your questions. use #orangeroom.
